To celebrate Father’s Day we recently chatted to James Mazey, dad to two gorgeous boys and an amazing photographer and support to the team here at West Coast Cocoa.
Tell us a little about yourself.
Hi, I’m James, I’ve lived most of my life in the beautiful Garden City Ōtautahi Christchurch but am currently based in Central Otago. Mistean is my fiancée and I am father to two boys, Felix (6) and Noah (5 weeks). I like to drink coffee, take photographs, get out in nature, go for runs, collect vinyl, watch docs, and am a long suffering Warriors fan.
At work I’m an Account Manager for Ozone Coffee Roasters. I look after our South Island customers and thrive on connecting with people who value speciality coffee.
I also shoot a bit of content for West Coast Cocoa. It’s always a fun process working with such a delicious product.
What do you enjoy most about being a Dad?
Being a Dad means everything to me. It really is the most challenging yet fulfilling and rewarding journey. I absolutely love seeing my boys learn, grow, laugh, and smile.
How will you be spending Father’s Day?
I’d like to spend the day just chilling with the squad. Start the day with a couple of coffees and breakfast in the sun, then maybe go for an afternoon walk by the river. If I could also get five minutes of peace and quiet at some stage that’d be a bonus!
Finally, how do you drink your West Coast Cocoa?
It’s gotta be Deluxe for that classic hot chocolate vibe. Always with oat milk, and best in the mid-afternoon or evening. To mix things up every now and again I’m also a big fan of Mayan Chilli and Peppermint.
This Father’s Day we have paired Ozone Coffee Roasters famous Empire Blend with our classic Deluxe Hot Chocolate to bring you all the ingredients to make one mighty fine Mocha and have even included a mug to drink it in! Shop our Father’s Day Gift Bundle here
